The module entitled "Structural Design of Composites", taken in the first semester of the Master's degree in Lightweight Engineering & Composites, initially familiarises students with the design philosophy of damage-tolerant structural behaviour. It is designed to enable you to optimise the structural design of composite structures in terms of their damage tolerance.
Furthermore, you will study non-linear structural design as part of the module. Students will be able, based on the teaching content, to include non-linear calculation methods in the structural design of fibre composite structures. Based on this knowledge you will also acquire an in-depth understanding of the finite elements method.
